Dubbert explores the constantly changing sexual and emotional influences on men by which society determines, validates, and judges their masculinity. He considers the effect America's wars, the Depression, and the rise of sports have had on the male roles and traces the influences of such heroic models as Daniel Boone, Teddy Roosevelt, and Jack Armstrong-the All-American boy.
